I think Car is not necessary for our life. Keep your car as backup during a transition period. While you are testing your car-free lifestyle and working out the kinks, you should hold on to your car until you can rely on alternative means. Once you can go for one to two months without touching the car, you are ready to let it go. Then, donate your car to charity for a tax write-off or sell it and get some of your hard earned money back. Use public transportation. If you live in an area with public transportation, take advantage of it. Research routes, find out about special fares and programs, bookmark the local trip planner on your computer, and save the customer service number on your cell phone. Consider moving to a location that is within biking or walking range to all the important places, such as grocery stores and bus or train stops or public transportation hubs. Get a map of the city's transit system or use an online trip planner, and find out how quickly you can reach various destinations from your prospective home. It is best to have at least a small grocery store within easy walking distance for quick trips. If you are looking for a big change, move to a city with a good public transit system, such as Chicago, New York, Boston, Washington, San Francisco, or Portland, Oregon. Alternatively, relocate to a small, yet still sizable city like Madison, Wisconsin, where you can cross the whole city by bike in a reasonable time.

Determine why you are going car-free. For some people, it is about social responsibility (i.e. minimizing fossil fuel consumption), health, to save money, or they do not have a driver's license. In addition, for a few, it is simply about freedom — not being tied down to the responsibilities of owning and maintaining a car. Your reason behind living without a car will affect how far you are willing to go with this lifestyle choice. But no matter what your motivation is, one thing's for sure: there will be cost savings.

I have no a car, so now I live with out a car. I have the way to avoid using a car is work close to home. You can choose housing that is near work, but if you like a particular neighborhood or house, you can also do the opposite. Make sure that your workplace is located within walking or biking range to a bus stop or train station. Also find out how difficult it is to reach your workplace from your house; if you can only get there by taking three different buses over two hours, it is not accessible. If possible, avoid the commute altogether by working near (or from) your home. Look into the possibility of telecommuting a few days a week or staggering hours to avoid sitting in traffic.

Familiarize Yourself With Public Transportation
If you plan to take the bus as a primary mode of transportation, it helps to have a route map and a schedule. For example, some of the streetcars in my city stop running at midnight, while others run 24 hours. Being familiar with the schedule will keep you from having to wait – or from getting stranded.
Furthermore, look for a discount card. The public transportation authority in New Orleans sells monthly cards to frequent riders. By loading up my card, I save $0.25 per ride (paying $1.00 instead of $1.25). Your city may offer something similar.

I think I'll ride bicycle and take the bus or public transport.
it's so cheap for me because I have no car.
nowadays, save your money is the best way to live today.
